    I think the ref-cam would be a cool addition to the UFC broadcast.

    With their move to this ESPN+ App stuff, they could give you an option to watch fights with the regular Broadcast camming or watch the fights from the ref-angle...(same goes for fight pass)

    ...similar to how you can do it with like F1, where you an chose your cam...

    Cant remember if they have done that (they probably did but let it go fast), but i do remember that Strikeforce did it....and at one point let it go...

    Big John wasn't a friend of this cam...but i was...and i wasn't the only guy out there...

    What do you think about it?...
    Should they give it a try?...or not?

    Of course they should. But they won’t concede that any idea that wasn’t theirs could be a good idea.

    One other thing it helps with by the way is getting a better angle when something strange happens. Like in PRIDE High Octane when back to back fights ended with fighters dislocating their shoulders in routine positions(Hendo-Kanahara and Cro Cop-Barnett). In both cases the ref cam gave the closest look at where it happened.

    This.

    I wonder if it's solely Dana and his ego at this point, or if it's UFC as a whole who doesn't want to improve their product. There's a lot of obvious things that should be implemented but they just wont' do it due to boneheadedness.
